Dear CIRES Colleagues,

A partial government shutdown seems likely at this point. We will continue to monitor the dynamic situation in Washington, DC, and plan to update InsideCIRES and the Admin Blog as warranted. It is feasible we will not have any news for you before 10 pm tonight (midnight Eastern), so as you leave your office at NOAA today, please consider the possibility you will not be back in the office for an uncertain amount of time. Again, our latest guidance is here.

Stay tuned,
Waleed Abdalati
CIRES Director
